Environmental Initiatives

Kelly Rd Cambridge Lodge offers guests a twenty two room boutique lodging at the entrance of the beautiful tree-lined Cambridge, consisting of a mixture of one bedroom suites, two bedroom suites and studio apartments.

Sensitively designed to compliment the local surroundings, we take great pride in being an environmentally conscious hotel. Kelly Rd is committed to mitigating the potential environmental and social impacts associated with the normal operation of our lodge in an environmentally sustainable manner.

Ongoing and recently introduced initiatives include but are not limited to:

Te Awa Cycle Ride Boardwalk


The products we use at Kelly Rd are selected to prevent and reduce our environmental impact. Our bathroom and kitchen bin liners are  100% compostable and biodegradable eco pack bags that contain no plastic and use non toxic water-based inks.  We also offer a cotton amenity takeaway bag to encourage guests to enjoy these amenities at home. Kelly Rd gives preference to local products and services where viable for both the property’s operations and the greater environment.


Waste Management:

The introduction of The Hotel Weka recycling program offers a socially and environmentally responsible partnership to keep bathroom waste to a minimum. All showers and taps are fitted with flow regulators aiding water consumption and power saving devices at the entrance of rooms sustainably control heat, light and power.

Our guests are encouraged to recycle Tin/Aluminium, Glass, Cardboard and Plastic in the bins provided. Our administration team is making significant improvements toward paper-free practices using digital communication and storage whenever possible.



Our guests can enjoy a range of low impact activities in Cambridge such as riding, kayaking, rowing, walking and biking. Te Awa Walkway and Cycleway is less than 1km away.

We have a programme of continuously monitoring and reviewing our environmental practices to keep up to date with current
